You know certain things come along in E-Mails that sometimes need to be put out there. This is one that came to me the other day. It is right along my way of thinking so thought I would share.
We’re “broke” & can’t help our own Seniors, Homeless, Veterans, Orphans, etc. ?????
This is so pathetically true…in the last month we have provided aid to Haiti, Chile, and Turkey.
Our retired seniors living on a fixed income receive no aid while our government and religious organisations pour hundreds of millions of dollars and tons of food to foreign countries.
We have hundreds of adoptable children who are shoved aside to make room for the adoption of foreign orphans.
Why are so many CANADIAN citizens, and the CANADIAN government, so star struck they won’t provide for our own?
CANADA: a country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed without eating, elderly going without needed meds, and mentally ill without treatment –
yet we have a benefit for the people of Haiti on 12 TV stations, ships and planes lining up with food, water, tents, clothes, bedding, doctors and medical supplies.
Imagine if we gave ourselves the same support that we gave all other countries.
I feel bad for them but I also care about CANADA.
One has to remember that we have to look after ourselves first. Why? Some ask. Well simple, if we don’t, the time will come we won’t be able to help anyone. My Opinion Only
